Torino v Juventus: Serie A Action on Match-day 10
Eighth placed Juve, are away to tenth placed Torino on Saturday.
This season’s Serie A campaign, has so far seen Torino achieve 11 points
Torino come to this match on the back of a 1-1 home draw against Empoli at Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino.
Also, Ivan Juric knows that a run of four losses in six meetings for his Torino side, is going to be a tough run of form to change. However that is exactly what he must try to deliver. With 11 points (3W, 4L and 2D), they are established in tenth position in the League having won three matches, drawn two matches, and lost four fixtures.
Torino have won one game, drawn two games, and lost one game of their four League matches at home this season.
Torino will have 14 points if they manage to secure a victory.
Juventus have 13 points to their name, going into this tie
Another victory would be a terrific achievement, but that is what Massimiliano Allegri will be asking from his team, as they go into this game on the back of strong results after beating AC Milan 2-0 and Bologna 3-0
Also, Juve have developed a habit of drawing football matches this season, which is reflected by their position in the table. With an eighth position in the league and 3 wins, 2 losses and 4 draws, they currently have 13 points in the League having won three fixtures, drawn four games, and lost two matches.
Juve have drawn two meetings and lost two games of their four League matches away from home this season.
Juventus will see 16 points so far this season, should they secure a win.
A solid defensive team
Juve have a solid defence, having only conceded seven goals in their previous fixtures. The number of goals that a team scores can sometimes give a misleading impression of performance. Juve have found the net 12 times (11 from open play and one penalty), but their performance at times this season has been average. This has been largely down to the key attacking players: Dusan Vlahovic (5), Arkadiusz Milik (3), and Bremer (1).
Juve’s squad will likely be depleted of five of their key players when they start on Saturday, due to injury or illness.
